Global pop/rock band The 1975 have announced a huge Dublin 3Arena gig ahead of the release of their fourth album.

Notes On A Conditional Form is hot on the heels of the band's third album,  A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, which garnered widespread critical acclaim after it's release.

The band released People to confused fans, with Matty Healy going into screamo mode for the tune. We personally love the change, and the boys also collaborated with climate activist Greta Thunberg.

The 1975 gave a phenomenal headliner set at Electric Picnic two weeks ago, where they blasted the Saturday evening stage.

The band will return to Ireland next May for their 3Arena show, with tickets set to fly out the door.  Notes On A Conditional Form is scheduled to be released on February 21.

The tour confirmation comes after the band unveiled their latest tune last month, described by NME as “a bone-rattling rallying cry for humankind to sort their shit out”. Sounds like Matty, eh?

Nostalgia is well and truly here to stay, it seems. The one and only Sinead O'Connor has just announced that she's playing four gigs around Ireland this year.

The Nothing Compares 2 U star is set to take to the Vicar Street stage on October 27 in a highly anticipated return to music.

She's also be performing at the famous Roisin Dubh in Galway on October 17, Spiegeltent in Wexford on October 24 and Cork Opera House on Oct 26.

Sinead is apparently ready to release new music, according to The Sun, and will embark on a tour worldwide afterwards.

Sinead debuted her new song, Milestones, last year under the name Magda Davitt. The track was a demo, produced by Northern dance DJ David Holmes.

Speaking to the Irish Sun, she said: “David wrote the music. I wrote the lyrics and melody.

Dublin Bus have announced a shuttle bus schedule to the much-anticipated Metallica concert at Slane Castle, taking place on Saturday June 8.

Thousands of concert-goers will travel with the bus company to the rock band's first Irish show in ten years. It's safe to say the excitement is well and truly building.

Those attending the gig have been urged by an Garda Síochána to plan their routes to and from the gig in advance for safety;

"Gardaí wish to remind those attending Metallica at Slane Castle on 8th June 2019 to plan their travel in advance. Use public transport if at all possible."

Customers have been urged to book tickets as soon as possible to ensure their seat on the day. You can grab your shuttle tickets on the Ticketmaster website for the most convenient travel experience.

Buses will depart between 11am and 4pm from Western Way, Dublin 7 and the return service will operate directly after the event.

A discounted price of €30 for a return ticket (plus booking fee) is available up until May 26, while tickets purchased up until 3 June will cost €40 for a return ticket (plus booking fee).

For outbound journeys, it's important to book a time slot. Metallica fans also can't travel outside of their allocated time slot. Rules are Rules, ladies.

There is limited availability for this service and tickets will sell out, so we'd urge you to book right now. No tickets will be sold on the actual day of the concert, so planning ahead is key.

A Dublin Bus spokesperson expanded on the new shuttle service;

“The reality is that if you take the bus you don’t have the hassle of finding a parking space, leaving more time to enjoy the concert and then travel home safely. It is so much more convenient. Dublin Bus takes the hassle out of travelling.”

There you go, people. You've no excuse to be wandering around the castle, lost amidst your fellow drunk rock fans.

Scottish-born singer and nephew of Peter Capaldi, Lewis Capaldi, has won hearts all over the nation with his HILARIOUS social media antics and voice of a gravelly angel.

His new album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, is out May 17 and features his UK Number 1 platinum-selling single Someone You Loved. It's officially the longest running number one single of the past 25 years, so he's hit the big time.

Part of the reason why he's found chart success is his campaigning on Twitter and Instagram, using absolutely gas photos of himself sporting various eccentric sunglasses and filming his strange antics.

If you haven't seen the thread of him having to unclog his toilet, you've missed out. Our personal fave is the stream of himself listening to Ariana Grande's latest album, which was set to knock his tune out of the charts.

In fact, his song made it back into the top 10, reaching number one and staying there. We're SO glad it did, because this down-to-earth chap with a love for Tinder deserves it.

After supporting Picture This at their five consecutive 3Arena nights recently, Capaldi is coming back to Dublin for his very own 2020 arena tour. 

Sunday March 8, 2020 at Dublin's 3Arena sold out in minutes, as well as the rest of the UK tour dates, but our boy has hooked us up with an extra date on March 9, 2020.

He's also initiating his special LIVELIVE programme to support fans experiencing emotional difficulties and have concerns about attending shows.

 

There'll be a team at each venue who are expertly trained and qualified in assisting with panic, anxiety or any other concerns fans may have. Capaldi created the scheme after his own experiences with anxiety had a dramatic effect on him.

Speaking about the idea, the singer said; "I really wanted to put something in place to help those people feel comfortable and offer them support to allow them to experience the shows."

The 22-year-old's tunes have been streamed over 600,000 times, and the youngster was shortlisted for the BBC Critics Choice Award. Tickets from €37.35 are on sale now via Ticketmaster, grab yours now.
